currency. the euro is the alternative and look at the problem they are having there. the dollar has gone down in value by 50% against the euro in the last decade. that's because our debt tripled in that amount of time 1971 the so-called nixon shock of wage and price controls and the gold standard ever since then since there has been dollar inflation. it has been fairly consistent in terms of its value, hasn't it? >> no. it's done with up and down. like i said, it's t. lost a tremendous amount of value against the euro. and the issue is the fed just prints money. it just keeps interest. in for the economy. there is going to be inflation. prohibited oddly enough in richard virginia. there you go. look at these. v.a. is going to spend $22,000 to study a virginia alternative currency. that kind of a waste of taxpayer money? >> you know, in a way it is. the issue is we have had, before we haven't just had the dollar forever. at one point, in 1836, there were every state had its own bank note. and there were 16,000 chartered types of currency. so easy to counterfeit. it d bs didn't work at all

will leave the euro zone or know despite all of the very elaborate fixes worked up to keep countries like greece from going completely under the problem of growth remains. and as long as europe is not growing then the fundamental economic problem here remains. the unemployment rate for the entire euro zone rose to a record high of 11.8% for november. that is up from 11.7% from october. but up from 10.6% a year ago. these are images of italians lining up to fill out forms for jobs. it's not uncommon to hear young italians say that they simply feel that the culture is skewed against them, not making way for them in this economy. prime minister mario monte passed legislation to make it easier for people tow start u to start up their own companies because youth unemployment is at 37%. some people are thinking better to make jobs for themselves than wait to be hired. spain has the word unemployment problem with a staggering rate of 26.6% for november, as unemployment rises you question how much longer governments can stick to their austerity programs. and the problem is with people losing jobs
ministers, with the imf, with the world bank issues, and most importantly now, with the euro zone and the crisis there. >> excellent point, andrea. that was always part of the job, but it never mattered as much as it has since the financial crisis. look, there is a club of central bankers, there's a club of finance ministers. there's sort of overlapping circles within that club. jack lew is not known to come part of that club. for one central banker to call another in the middle of a crisis and say, hey, we're going to do this and be able to talk on the phone and to really address global financial issues in a hurry, i'm not saying jack lew can't be part of that. i know he also has spoken with a lot of these people in the past. he has talked to business executives on a pretty regular basis. as for his priors, he is not a member of that club. >> now, if he does have the chops to come up with a budget deal and real entitlement reform, and coming from a liberal to progressive background, having worked for tip o'neill, and i was told started out in politics in new york city with the la
through kidnapping for ransom. they've made more than $30 million euros after kidnapping french citizens because the french will pay for the nationals to come back. up until this point, they hadn't taken an american hostage and now they have at least three. >> so they would view perhaps mali as the next afghanistan or having the possibility of being the next afghanistan before 9/11 when in fact it was a haven for al qaeda. >> there are parallels there because in some ways, you know as one u.s. official said to me half jokingly it's the world's worst neighborhood. you have islamic extrialists, you have al qaeda through aqim, you have drug traffickers up there in the north of mali. and you have just rebels who want some independence to split the country in two. so in that mix you have that worry that you can create within the chaos a command and control center. like what you saw al qaeda do through the taliban in afghanistan. so that's the fear that it can become a launch pad. >> rose: on another matter finally, when dow expect the secretary of state to testify about ben gazee-- ben gaddee
and something about the world. did you see this poster from the e.u. showing all of the symbols of the euro? it showed a cross, star of david and so on and a hammer and sickle. there is a bit of an outcry from the lithuanians. and i ask why does it take the lithuanians, why aren't we in the west sympathetic enough to the persecuted under communism to object ourselves? white -- why would we leave it to them? i am relaxed about these symbols. we see a guy what they cccp with hammers and sickles and i once did a study on this on a simple magazine piece and some people say it's proof. it's kind of funny. you know, you don't see the pictures on t-shirts. it's just a t-shirt. as andrew daniels points out if we only took one good picture in this life he looks like a moon star and he got his cheekbones just right but it wasn't all that much, honestly. this is all regarding chambers, but he was a witness and a truth teller and it was really hard for him to forsake not popular approval but the approval of the people that mattered was colleagues and journalism and what we might call the liberal establ

, euro survived the big crisis. is there some optimism there? >> reporter: well, schwab, head of the world economic forum, optimistic smiling, says the euro didn't collapse, europe didn't fall apart, there's economic growth in the united states, there's room for optimism. i can tell you if you talk to the ceos, most of the people are ceos and in business, they are not optimistic. there is a deficit of confidence, and that's because you have budgetary problems in the united states, you have the eurozone problem, you have china, india slowing down. these other issues are very much on their agenda. so, you and i, as the week will go on, will distill this into what really they're talking. at the moment, the one word to keep in mind, risk. where it lies at the moment. >> and if they think that it's risky, business people and they're trying to get a sense of where we are with the economy if they think it's risky, how is that impacting us? everyday folks here who are looking at their, you know, paychecks and homes and wondering if it's going to change, if it's going to get better. >>
-fledged member. using the euro and everything else. i guess it makes it less likely that they'll adopt a common currency. if they're thinking about leaving the union. >> absolutely. no, there's a widespread sense of relief that britain isn't more closely tied in. if you leak at the performance of the economy, the fact britain has its own central bank, it can pursue monetary policies or policies appropriate for britain and not have to worry about other member states certainly is being taken as a sign of relief. and there's very little sentiment certainly for joining the euro now. although i will say the bank of england numbers fight they're not happy with how strong sterling is. they think currency should be weaker and it could help performance going forward. echoing the currency that we're starting to hear this year. >> no talk about becoming the 51st state which they probably have wanted to do for a while given how we excelled after we broke off. they could come back into the fold, perhaps joining the u.s. and adopt the dollar if they really wanted some -- any talk of that at this point? would
this morning. >> earnings season kicks off today. we just learned the unemployment in the euro area hit a record high. >> imagine unemployment at 11.8%. i mean, this is troubling for people in europe, our biggest trading partner as a zone. and another reason why it's so important, because europe has been in the midst of austerity, cutting budgets, cutting spending, cutting benefits. and it's driving unemployment higher. and as we enter into this big debate in this country about cutting spending, cutting benefits, what are the things to take away from that for the united states? also a debt ceiling alarm bell from the bipartisan policy center saying the treasury department's going to run out of room on the debt ceiling earlier than we thought. february 15th, they say. that's the "x" date when we can't pay all of our bills, when we literally only have that date $9 billion coming in, and we have $52 billion in bills. imagine that in your own household. if you had $9 billion coming in and $52 million going out. when you look at it, it's staggering. i think we have a chart on the left. that'
